I haven't used wireless input devices before so I would welcome
caveats, comments and recommendations.
I'm running ubuntu 14.04 on a 2011 Mac Mini. I have an external
10-port usb 2.0 hub.
My input setup is a Happy Hacking Keyboard Lite 2 (HHKL2) - PS
version - with a logitech trackball on the right and a stand-alone
keypad on the left. The HHKL2 has onboard usb ports into which I plug
the trackball and the keypad.
I'd like to replace both the keypad and the trackball with a
wireless variant. I have limited motion in my right thumb but I can
easily switch the positions trackball and keypad, if necessary.
I would prefer that any replacement trackball be symmetical so that
I could switch said device from right to left, if necessary.
A mouse is not an option.
Before I start looking at candidates, I'd welcome input regarding
anyone's relevant experience.
